For one hour, choose to not complain about anything. Or at least notice when you do.
And it does not count when you are sleeping.
Why would you attempt to do this?
We spend a lot of our time in the complaint department. We complain about the weather, we complain about other drivers, we complain because our partner or kids make a mess, we complain because we do not make enough money, we complain because we do not get enough sleep, and we complain for the sake of complaining.
You could add so much to the list. What is the key to being aware of is what it costs you to complain. When we complain we give our power to the very thing we are complaining about and it gets stronger, not you.
So for one hour today start to notice when you complain and stop it. Notice how when you become aware of the complaining, you can start to look for the solutions. It really is hard to complain when you look for the answer.
